Outlast 2 tips and strategies
Outlast 2 is a game of stealth and item conservation, and you'll need to be on your toes if you hope to make it through.
• Don’t try to take on your enemies. Your best course of action in Outlast 2 is to run and hide whenever you spot danger.
• Using the sound tracker on your camcorder is a waste of batteries. Turn your volume up or wear headphones and just use your ears.
